Data Location Seal "Lucky" (fwd)

"Houston we may have a problem". I know I have said this before, but here
is the news. Over the weekend we only received data from "Lucky" on one
day. We have not had any reports from Sunday or this morning. I am a bit
suspicious, as the messages Saturday ended at the last satellite pass, and
it would be strange if the tag stopped sending signals at exactly that
time. The tag, however is getting close to the end of it's battery life,
so I suspect it is a possibility (another strange thing is that ALL of the
signals were good location hits...again it would be odd for a tag that was
failing to be signaling that well just before it quit). Right now I am
checking to see if it is a problem in the network, and I should have that
figured out in a day or so. Meanwhile, the data we did get from the tag
show that "Lucky" began to head north along the edge of Wildcat Knoll. If
I was to guess, I would say that he might be heading back towards Maine
again, but it would take more data to be sure. Hopefully we will get some
more and be able to find out.

Keep your fingers crossed.
